Quite a few: tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, zucchinis, pumpkins, peppers, eggplant, tomatillos, christophene, okra, breadfruit, avocado, green beans, lentils, snow peas, soybean are all botanically fruits, but considered vegetable in cuisine. (Vegetable is not a botanical term.)

All fruit are considered vegetables but not all vegetables are considered fruit (Below ground growth, leaves, bark and inner pulp of the stem are not fruit) Fruit are the result of seed forming for the most part and are related to only the flower part of a plant.
